Tulsa vs Mississippi State

Rotation #317-318
Tulsa/Mississippi State Over 45 (win)
We will have a little rain and some wind in this game, but the total is set really low for 2 offensive minded play callers.  Mike Leach and Phil Montgomery are two great offensive minds that will try to out do each other.  Tulsa has a lot of veteran receiving targets that should put up points on this Bulldogs Defense.  Mississippi State had a few offensive opt outs, but should be able to nickel and dime down the field.  Both teams have massive offensive lines.  I don’t think this game will be a shootout, but this total is really low and should find away over with the play calling.  Take the Over.

West Virginia -6.5 over Army (loss)
I am glad that Army got into a bowl game with how great of a year they had, but WVU has athletes on their team that Army is not used to playing.  The mountaineers linebackers are about the size of the Army defensive line.  These are two ball control offenses so this should be a super boring and low scoring game.  Army will have a tough time getting back in this game if they get down.  West Virginia has a lot of options in the receiving game that Army can’t cover  and on defense I believe their front seven will be able to handle this undersized offensive line.  Take West Virginia.

Rotation #743
Colorado +1.5 over USC (win)
USC has a great incoming class of freshman.   Evan Mobley is off to a great start and this team brought in a few key transfer players.  This team is very long and once some of the freshman get stronger they are going to be tough to stop.  Colorado got beat the other night by Arizona in a game they fell apart in the second half.  I am not ready to downgrade this team yet, but this is a game they should win as they won both of the games last year and have the veteran team .  The Trojans are just getting familiar with each other while the Buffs have been playing together for years.  Take Colorado.
